Watch Fred Armisen Call Strangers and Freak Them Out

Fred's Ex Speaks
Elisabeth Moss dishes on her marriage to Fred Armisen.
I would definitely accept a call from Portlandia star Fred Armisen. Would you?

The Emmy-nominated actor and former SNL star decided to see if people on the street would step outside their comfort zone and allow their curiosity to overrule their skepticism.

Fred, in a social experiment sponsored by Heineken, called unwitting strangers and invited them to “come across the street” to see the comedian perform at New York City’s famous Comedy Cellar. 

The 47-year-old hipster bandleader and guitarist for Late Night With Seth Meyers asks those brave enough to answer the call if they’ll come across the street to a “comedy place,” even employing a British accent to cajole the oblivious folks. It’s all pretty entertaining. Check it out in the video above.
